Medium-format Rapidas are a hit in Singapore and Southeast Asia

A five-colour Rapida 105 with coater from Koenig & Bauer (KBA) was installed at Singaporean commercial printer Ngai Heng in early 2013. The success story of the high-performance KBA Rapida press series continues in the Asia Pacific region with this installation.

Both the high-end Rapida 106 and the all-rounder Rapida 105, which is based on the same technological platform as the Rapida 106, are particularly valued by commercial, book and packaging printers in the Far East. Superlarge sheetfed presses from the market leader in large format have also proved very popular here. It is therefore no surprise that KBA is growing steadily in this region.
